Towards the end of the 17th century Regensburg, being the center
of the German Empire, attracted many noble and demanding visitors.
To provide the visitors of the city with cool drinks in the summer
time an ice pit was built on an offshoot of the Bavarian plateau.
This hill called the "Eisbuckel" was named after this

The Hotel-Restaurant Wiendl then ...
In 1836 a pub called "Fikentscherkeller" later

eat and drink and you will cheerfully live in spacious and bright
new rooms, built above a huge rocky basement. A marvelous view
makes all the people cheerful from here you can see the
Walhalla approaching her completion."
Although you can only enjoy that wonderful view from our second
floor rooms, we still hope that you will have an equally comfortable
stay in our hotel.
